Wishes and kisses
I am not sure how many of you Mums out there did what I did… and went and had their baby RIGHT near Christmas? Talk about terrible timing, right?
Our darling daughter is a December child and has always lived with sharing her Big Day with Yuletide celebrations. And this year – with Christmas parties and Santa gifts already underway, the mix of the two is clear (or muddy?).
Luckily Violet is a sunny little woman (for the most part) and – as long as something horsey or purty makes its way into her hot little hands on December 14 each year – she’s happy. This morning she got some MORE Schleich horses, along with a four-wheel-drive and horse float (trailer) to cart them to all those imaginary campdrafts and pony club meets. And purple jodphurs. And two hand-painted pottery bears (?) from her brother (which he wrapped at 4.30am this morning).
She wanted a party (which I have kind of organised, but already discovered that I have forgotten the balloons) and homemade sausage rolls (underway).
Of course, the one thing she REALLY wants for a gift, is something we cannot really give her.
Luckily ‘Santa’ gave her the next best thing – a book about it! If anyone wants to leave a message in comments I promise to read it to her.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DARLING VIOLET.
We love you more than words can say.
Mummy & Daddy & Dash
